Moss Botanical Poster - Polytrichum commune

The Science:

This poster illustrates Common Haircap Moss, a fairly large moss found widely across wet temperate regions in the Northern Hemisphere. Like other mosses, it reproduces by the use of spores, rather than seeds. The poster shows many details of the structure of the plants, rendered in a wonderfully evocative, abstracted manner. This is one of a wonderful series of Scientific German Educational Charts, created in the 1950s and 60s and still produced by the original printer, internationally recognized for producing educational science charts since 1929. These charts are issued today using the original film and same methods as the first printing. They are printed without inscription for both classroom study and decorative purposes, with special attention paid to botanical detail and scientific accuracy.

The Story:

Mounted on linen canvas stretched on wooden rods for display, each measures 44.5 inches tall by 32.25 inches wide (85 cm x 120 cm), and comes with a nylon cord strung through the top wooden rod for easy hanging. Each comes securely rolled and will be shipped to you in a sturdy mailing tube. These lovely botanical posters are large, colorful and impressive pieces of science decor. Add a touch of vintage classroom style to your home today!
